Physical mail to end at Bartholomew County Jail

Mail to inmates in the Bartholomew County Jail will be going digital.

The sheriff’s department announced yesterday that it is making the change in December. Inmates will have one month to contact their family and friends explaining the new system, then all mail will be sent digitally by January.

The jail is contracting with a company called Earth Class Mail to make the change. After Dec. 6th, physical mail must be sent to an address in San Antonio, Texas, where it will be scanned in and then sent electronically to the inmate.

The service will not scan books, magazines, catalogs, advertising mailers or junk mail. Those will be considered trash and will not be electronically shipped.

Legal mail from attorneys will remain the same.

The new mail address:

Facility Name (Bartholomew County Jail)
Inmate Name – Inmate System ID Number
PO Box 1042 PMB #39193
San Antonio, TX 78294-1042
*NOTE: Do NOT place preceding zeros in the booking number.
